Recommendations for Comic Book Day
In our post last time we briefly highlighted National Comic Book Day coming up on September 25th. We thought it would be fun to follow that up with some comic book suggestions for members of our apartment community to enjoy here at Liv Northgate.
These days, comic books are seeping into all sorts of media. From movies to television to fine art, their stories and characters are icons of international culture. If you haven’t picked up a comic book since you were a kid (or ever at all), we’ve gathered together some of the greatest titles available.
Superman has been called many things, from the defender of truth, justice and the American way to the Big Blue Boy Scout. In LEX LUTHOR: MAN OF STEEL, he is called something he has never been called before: a threat to all humanity. Brian Azzarello and artist Lee Bermejo--the acclaimed team who brought you the best-selling JOKER--deliver a bold story in which readers get a glimpse into the mind of Superman's longtime foe. MAN OF STEEL reveals why Luthor chooses to be the proverbial thorn in the Man of Steel's side: to save humanity from an untrustworthy alien being.
2015's overnight internet sensation takes center stage in her own series! Gwen Poole used to be a comic book reader just like you...until she woke up in a world where the characters she read about seemed to be real! But that can't be, right? This must all be fake, or a dream or something, right? And you know what that means...NO CONSEQUENCES! Could Gwenpool truly be Marvel's least responsible and least role-modely character to date? She can if she tries!
Mashing monsters is a messy business, but these two hard-headed mercenaries know that it serves a noble purpose: getting them paid. Just don’t stand in their way. Oh, and Skullkickers comes with a bonus that the other comics we mentioned don’t… you don’t have to pay to read it. That’s right — the whole series is available for free, in its entirety, online. Go check it out here!
